Golfers With Best Chances to Win
A few names on the board have been shifted around for best odds to win, with most notably being Sam Burns. Burns came in second last year with a -22 and has a great price tag on his head to win this year.
Burns might have an edge compared to some of the other favorites to play here due to his recent experience at this course. However, bettors might overlook him since he missed the cut at the Masters.
Will Zalatoris is a great value choice and interesting to see his name high on the odds list compared to others. He finished tied for 17th last year, but has been solid at a handful of events this season.
Zalatoris is currently the 28th best golfer in the world and he will have a chance to move up. Assuming he is able to remain consistent, he has a great shot to win.
Justin Thomas has to break through at some point and hold another trophy. His last victory was back in the 2021 Players, but has been let down by his putting at a majority of other events
Thomas has great ball striking and is a great candidate to win an event with a high scoring output. Hopefully his putting is in good shape because he will need to rely on it once again.
Potential Winning Pick for AT&T Byron Nelson
Scottie Scheffler is going to be the man to beat every tournament he enters now. After winning four out of the last six tournaments he has competed in, it is no wonder he is the best golfer in the world now.
On top of that, one of those victories was a Masters. You can look at every victory he has posted this season and apply it to this course. This should be a great event for him and allow him to showcase his talents once again.
